We are honored to gather critical members of the team who are changing the BRCA landscape in the Bay Area and beyond. The public and health care professionals are  invited to learn more from our experts. A reception will follow the panel discussion. (Parking at Community Center Garage at 1675 Owens St., UCSF Mission Bay Campus)

We invite you to join UCSF’s global health experts Heather Greenwood, MD; Alan Ashworth, PhD, FRS; Pamela Munster, MD; and Mindy Goldman, MD; breast cancer survivor and patient advocate Laura Holmes Haddad, author of This is Cancer: Everything You Need to Know, From the Waiting Room to the Bedroom; as well as our MC for the evening, Larisa Kure, breast cancer survivor and associate dean of administration and finance of the School of Denstistry, for refreshments and conversation. Whether you know your BRCA status or need to learn more, this gathering will help you understand genetic risks and how they affect health outcomes.

Additionally, we are proud to offer another unique opportunity to our guests – quick tours of the Mammovan from ZSFG (Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital), which will be available that evening for a visit both before- and after the lecture (5-6:15 pm and 7:30-8 pm). Our guests will learn more about how the van is used to provide mammography screening to low-income communities in the area. It will be located near the Community Center Garage at 1675 Owens St. and tours will be run by Mary McGinty, supervisor of the Avon Breast Center at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital.

CME credits will be available.
